Announcement

THANK YOU everyone who came to support the Gin's 26 miles hike and fundraising for American Lung Association in memory of Gin Goon. Despite the rain shower in the morning, there were over 60 hikers joining the hiking events on 4/23/2016.
The Gin's 26 Miles Hike is an annual event to start the fundraising campaign for American Lung Association in memory of Gin Goon. Gin Goon was one of the founders of CMCNY. He was a mountaineering and hiking experts. His patience and selfless personality had motivated many of us to become outdoor enthusiasts. Unfortunately, cancer had developed in his lungs in 2003 and he passed away in October the same year. Although we miss him, his legacy lives on in the organization.
This year, a record of 32 people had completed the strenuous Gin's 26 miles hike with 10 people being their first attempt. Congratulations to them for all the effort they have made to accomplish this great challenge.
Your encouragement on the trail and support to the Gin's hikers have made a big difference. Thank you everyone who had already made a donation to American Lung Association in honor of Gin Goon. CMCNY will continue to take donations during the month of May and the contributions will be sent to American Lung Association as a pool to honor Gin Goon. Please send your contribution to CMCNY, PO Box 295, New York, NY 10163 or bring it to the trip leaders on your next hike. Your contribution will best be made by check or money order payable to "American Lung Association". Your contribution is tax deductible. Thank you in advance for your continual support and generous donations.

This is a natural preserve in the heart of the suburban Morris County, NJ.

The area contains a maze of trails with many hidden viewpoints like the Tripod Rock, Bear Rock and to just naming a few. Therefore follow the trip leader and take your time to visit these interesting places. For faster hikers, they can extend the hike to Turkey Mountain and visit the reservoirs.
